I have really enjoyed Path of Exile lately. If you are looking for a good arpg experience that is less pay to win than Diablo 3, this is a good choice. You really can enjoy all the content the game offers for free, and there is nothing you can buy with real money that will make your character more viable.

Every example you have stated is just flat out protectionism, and is not something our gov't should be involved in.

Progress often means the status quo becomes outdated.

Who the fuck likes a car salesman anyway? I can't imagine there is a lot of support to retain those jobs.

I've only grudgingly moved more and more of my reading to tablets, but now am glad I have; still, I don't like the idea of having my books disappear if I don't pay a continuing subscription.

I see this as a big benefit for people that like to read for entertainment. You aren't paying for the actual books, just access to them. For light reading (entertainment purposes) this seems like a great deal.

I'll always buy technical books I want to refer to in hard copy when I can, but I don't need a persistent copy of most of the things I read.
